My Beautiful Adra

~ Book 2 ~

mybeautiful adramedium

Well, joyously, Book 1 in the “Forever Bride in 21 Questions” is complete. And, I was really excited to get started on this second book in the series. Now, I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve almost completed the above novelette, and amazingly, I like the way it’s turning out even better than my initial plan. Yay!

Here’s the premise:

Adra accepted a coffee shop date with a guy from her performance arts college. They conversed well, but they were still new to each other, so there were uncomfortable, momentary silences. She ventured an idea on getting to know each other better. The idea… Game of 20 Questions. Adra allowed him to ask the first question. His first question was, “What’s the most important thing to you in the whole world?” Her answer… “Being a member of the Royal Family.”

Unfortunately, Adra had to bail before clarifying her answer. If she didn’t leave the coffee shop that moment, she’d be late to her next class. So, he was left wondering what in the world she meant by that answer.

Because of missed dates, mishaps, illnesses on both sides, it took FOREVER to complete the game, and for him to understand her first question answer.

When the game was finally completed, or so Adra thought, she was asked one final question beyond the game… Question Twenty-One. Adra knew her mind and what her feelings were for this talented man. But, even so, what would her answer be, and what would it mean?

This is number 2 in an 8-surprise-ending-novelettes series called, “FOREVER BRIDE IN 21 QUESTIONS”.

My Beloved Leilani

~Book 1 ~

mybelovedlailani

Right in the middle of working on finishing the novel further down this page, I had an inspiration! The cover of a new 8-novelette series burst forth in my mind. Since they are short (10,000 to 15,000 words), I decided to finish the first one right away.

Here’s the premise:

Leilani is in the Bride’s Room at a small chapel, preparing to walk the aisle in twenty minutes, to be joined in marriage to the man she believes she will love forever. She will love him forever, right?! She is nervous, fidgety, and having last-minute questions as to whether she should proceed with the ceremony.

Twenty minutes before leaving the Bride’s Room, an envelope is slipped under the closed door. As Leilani retrieves it, opens it, and semi-hides herself behind her private dressing screen to read it, she discovers it is from her groom. Within its pages, Leilani discovers that he has written her a pre-wedding love letter of sorts.

Within its pages, he re-counts the game they played of “Twenty Questions” on their first date. He has remembered ALL her answers. And, at the end, he asks her a twenty-first question that may change this day forever.

Leilani’s answer to the twenty-first question will determine the outcome of their wedding day story.

What would your answer be? In the light of it, what would you do?

This is number 1 of an 8-surprise-ending novelettes series called, “FOREVER BRIDE IN 21 QUESTIONS”.

IN PROGRESS

From Grace Abounds Grace

Because I work on multiple novels at any given time, I admit I put this one on the back burner. And, it’s been there for some time now while I worked on a couple of others. But, this last week I had multiple requests from readers to please, please, p l e a s e complete this one. So… you win! I’m working solely and diligently on this one.

To read the story synopsis, click here. You’ll notice that a different novel is at the top of the page. That’s because this is number 2 in a 3-book series. You might want to read JOYFUL, JOYFUL first, though. Just because…

Standby. I’m writing just as quickly as possible!

~ “Grampy’s Old Typewriter” Series ~

Three books, all about a young woman, the woes of the marriage proposal offered her, and what came afterward, all recorded on her newly departed Grampy’s old typewriter. She knew he’d never read it, but the whole process had a profound effect on her.

Book 1 – Manicotti Kisses ~ From the moment she awoke, this day had “Disaster” written all over it, only to be made worse by the very words of his proposal.

Book 2 – Chili Dog Hugs ~ Back-tracking, she tells the whole story of how they met in the first place, their dating relationship, and how they even decided to get married.

Book 3 – Whoopie Pie Winks ~ Months and months and months later, she’s married. But, to whom? The guy who broke her heart the night he proposed? The handsome childhood “first love”? Or, someone new who is everything she ever wanted?

A brand new series has been born. “All in a Name.” Each story introduces a main character whose name is almost the polar opposite of who she is as a person. As each story unfolds, the question becomes, Will she embrace the meaning of her name, consciously or not, and, if so, how will it impact her life?

Ok, I guess it’s time to come clean fully and let my readers know that the first in the series, Joyful, Joyful has been released and is available right now at Amazon for Kindle, paperback, Smashwords, and Barnes and Noble.

To read more about these story lines and order, click the above picture, or click here.

The question still remains, however… did I accomplish my 2019 writing goals? Well… yes and no. WHAT???!!!

I only wrote one novella called, RETURN TO CINDER ~ A CHRISTMAS TALE. (You’ll find out about this novella by clicking the title above.)

But, I’m letting myself off the hook. I’m disappointed I didn’t get all three pictured-above novels completed, but life just happens, doesn’t it? I’m sooo grateful, though, to have completed the one I did.

Perhaps 2020 will allow me to complete the second and third stories above.
